Huskers manage four hits as losing streak hits 5.

The Nebraska Baseball team continued a rough patch in conference play as they were swept Sunday afternoon, losing 6-1 to the Michigan Wolverines. Reece Eddins took a tough loss for the Huskers who could only manage four hits.

Nebraska looked to be threatening in the third inning when Jesse Wilkening walked and Jake Schleppenbach reached on an error to start the inning. Steven Reveles then popped up a bunt and Wilkening was doubled off at second to kill the rally.

Sophomore Jake Meyers, making his second start of the season would pitch into the fourth inning before finding trouble. Meyers would allow a single and a double to put the Wolverines ahead 1-0. Eddins would come in and close the door temporarily to keep the Huskers in the contests.

Nebraska would look to plate the tying run in the fifth inning after Luis Alvarado got the first hit of the contest with a double down the left field line. Alvarado would try and score on Schleppenbach's single past a diving shortstop but would be thrown out easily to keep Michigan ahead.

The Huskers would break through when Ryan Boldt singled in the top of the sixth, advanced on a balk and a wild pitch and scored on a Ben Miller single.

Eddins would come back out for the sixth, but would give up a walk, and two singles to start the inning to put Michigan back up. Jeff Chestnut would come in and get a out of the inning giving up only one more run.

Michigan would plate three more in the seventh, two coming on a long double to the gap in left center. Nebraska would be unable to get any runners on base in the last three innings. With the loss Nebraska drops to 7-5 in conference play.
